Shouldn't I be an ambassador

Postby Lukan » 21 Jun 2014, 11:56

Hi everybody, I was just wondering why my player class isn't upgraded to ambassador status yet. Maybe I misread the rules, so if anyone could clarify, that would be much appreciated.
I read that the last three games would be looked at. My last three games were two solo wins and one defeat, no surrender, not a single order missed. Can anyone tell me why I didn't get upgraded to ambassador? Thank you very much.

I only see two games since your last surrender - you surrendered on 2nd June (game 82485) and since then you have started and finished two games, 82629 and 81679.

I wonder if it is game 82326 confusing you? This was one of your solos, and finished after your last surrender. However it was started some time BEFORE your last surrender. When you surrender, it resets the clock on the 'started and finished 3 games' count. So that one does not count as one of your three games that you started and finished since your last surrender.

You are not far off though :)

I have the same question!

Three games with no surrender or NMR

The game I picked up counts?

the complete details are here

the details wrote:Becoming an Ambassador
In order to determine if a Diplomat should become an Ambassador, at the end of each game player records are checked to see if any Diplomats have attained Ambassador status.
• Your last three finished games you played from the start are examined, together with any other intervening activity such as other active games or surrendered pickups
• If you had NO SURRENDERS and no more than 3% NMR rate (excluding Builds), you become an Ambassador
